What You Can Get for $20/Mo With PlayStation Now

PlayStation_Now_April_Subscription

When PlayStation Now initially launched, the service was limited to allowing you to rent games on a title-by-title basis. While great for those who wanted an occasional game, it left something to be desired for gamers who wanted to sample all kinds of games or binge-game over their weekend. Months later, Sony would also introduce a subscription service which, for $20/mo, allowed you to game as much as you wanted. Just last week, we released a list of games that’s available for rent via PlayStation Now. After the jump, we have a list of games that’s available via the subscription service which differs from the rental library.

Quick Thoughts on ‘Valiant Hearts: The Great War’

1180-eprofits-game-of-the-week-valiant-hearts-the-great-war-1

 

In Flanders fields the poppies blow,

Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place; and in the sky,

The larks, still bravely singing, fly,

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

 

These words were written by Lt. Col. John McCrae during the Great War (1914-18). Here in Canada, across Europe and other former British Colonies we marked the centennial anniversary of the start of the First World War this past July. Just prior to that on June 24th 2014 Ubisoft Montpellier released a small game to commemorate the occasion. After the jump, we have the details on this bite sized, but highly rated game.

Big Changes Coming with Destiny Update 1.1.2, Includes Suspend/Resume

Destiny_Update_112_Vault

With PlayStation 4 system update 2.50, gamers were granted the ability to suspend/resume a game which translates into drastically shorter times when turning off/on your console and getting back into your previous game. While many games support the feature right out of the gate, Destiny, one of the most popular games on PS4, lacked the ability to utilize the newly added feature. With Destiny update 1.1.2, all that will change as Bungie will bake in the functionality. Beyond that, other major tweaks will be coming to Destiny like larger vault sizes in preparation for the upcoming House of Wolves expansion.
